Flush buddy could save Cape Town 40 to 60 million liters of water

The water scarcity in Cape Town has led to more water saving innovation coming out of Capetonians. The latest innovation is a product called the flush buddy which is designed to save the water that goes into the cistern in the toilet at home.

Dylon Burgess, Trevor Maasdorp and Wesley Miller are a Kuils River trio who have come up with a product which could potentially save the city between 40 and 60 million liters of water daily.

Co-founder of the Flush Buddy, Wesley Miller, says they are currently in talks with the City to have the product rolled out in bulk. They are calling on business to also lend a helping hand in making sure that the product becomes commercialised.

This is similar to the old concept of placing a brick in the toilet cistern. We took a look at the model and perfected it to provide a product that works more effectively.

Wesley Miller, Co-founder of the Flush Buddy

You save two litres of water per flush... It attaches inside the toilet cistern and it is effective in almost every toilet.
